HEY! Who stole my Guns'N'Roses???

  • May 21, 2000
Pros: good music and a great performer

Cons: .......

Lordy! Do these people ever listen to what I say? After all this time together they should realize I never cross the line into <gasp> Country-Western! Well, ok, there was that movie Honeysuckle Rose - but it had Amy Irving in it, so I had an excuse. And sure, there was Coal Miner's Daughter - Beverly D'Angelo <whew!> saved again! But Garth? Come on guys! Ok, ok there WAS that concert - but my bosses wife was out of town and I was the only woman she trusted him to go to the concert with (fool!) I admit it, I saw Garth in concert. But did that really require I suddenly have his music in my collection????

But it was a birthday gift because they knew I would never take that step myself. With trepidation, I slid the CD's into my player, thinking I could run the vacuum at the same time therefore I could say, Yea, I listened to them, and at the same time get some much needed housework done (thanks to Epinions, that never seems to happen anymore).

What a pleasant surprise! Well, one the vacuum seemed to be on vacation that day and two, the music wasn't all that bad! Now I am not opposed to getting my world rocked, after all I listen to Guns ‘N' Roses and AC/DC, but Garth gives you that and more.

Just when you think you are rocked out with The Thunder Rolls and Longneck Bottle he throws in Tearing it up and Burning it Down. But don't think it is all about rockin country here, he also has the ability to bring you right back down with The River and Unanswered Prayers.

Included on this release are a duet with Trisha Yearwood - Wild as the Wind and Steve Warner joins him on Longneck Bottle. Of course, no Garth collection would be complete - so I've been told - without Friends in Low Places and The Dance. In all, there are 12 selections on this dual CD - some rocking, some poignant and some just durn funny!

Am I a converted Garthhead now? Nope, not a bit. But I liked this release and don't mind playing it over again. I will give the guy kudos though, his concerts are exciting and exhausting. How he manages to work it like he does is beyond me! In addition, I admire the fact that he tends to go to the smaller venues so he can be closer to his fans and will extend his concert nights if a show becomes sold out too soon, as he did here. Starting for three shows, he ended up doing six - yea, I know, more bucks in his already full pockets - but not many artists will extend themselves that way and heck, even for an old R&R person like me, it was worth it.
